Vengal SC Village, Tamil Nadu, India

‘I am Mrs. Suganthi Rani W/o Lingam of Vengal SC Village privileged to thank and greet NEWS NGO, DROP4DROP, U.K. and kindly donated by ESS DEFENCE THROUGH PURCHASES OF LIFE WATER, for a Deep Borewell fitted with an Electrical Motor and a 2000 Liters Overhead Tank to our Vengal SC Village. Water is one of the most essential in our lives. But it remained as a dream to us. We developed great happiness when NEWS NGO came to our village and made the survey. It was great surprise for us and as we never dreamt that we will be getting water source especially nearer to our houses. We made some attempts with the local village authorities and due to lack of funds and poor policies we could not avail the water sources. But it is our great joy and also, we convey our sincere gratitude to ESS DEFENCE THROUGH PURCHASES OF LIFE WATER, DROP4DROP, U.K., for supporting the project through NEWS NGO. Our children convey their sincere regards for your supports and they are able to take bath and keep themselves in a hygienic manner. Thank you’

This project was undertaken as part of our campaign of projects that actively reduce carbon emissions. This project helped the community save their much needed wood which was previously being burnt daily to boil water. This project has also eliminated the many thousands of hours previously spent on walking to collect water.
